How do you get BandwidthD working?

  • I installed the package, and looked at the settings for it. I'm unsure of what values I need for most settings. When i attempt to start Bandwidthd in the services page, It states that It started, but when I refresh it's stopped.

    I get the following error in the system log:
    Dec 25 13:47:30 php: /pkg_mgr_install.php: You should specify a interface for bandwidthd to listen on. exiting.

    I made sure to set the interface to the LAN interface, but I'm still having issues starting it.

    I am using it on pfsense 2.0

  • I just attempted to start bandwidthd from shell, and get the following errors:


    /libexec/ Shared object "" not found, required by ""

  • Just installed 2.0b and had this issue myself, you can fix it by ssh'ing to the pfsense box and creating a symlink for this file against the newer .5 file:

    ln -s /lib/ /lib/

    Then you can run it manually (or use the GUI):


    Bandwidthd maintainer should probably be notified of this issue to update their package.
